From Amazon.co.uk

Now joined by a hit fourth instalment, the Die Hard Quadrilogy is, bluntly, an essential set for any self-respecting fan of action cinema.

The gold, of course, is the original Die Hard, a flat-out five star classic pretty much without equal. Introducing Bruce Willis’ John McClane as an ordinary guy in an extraordinary situation, it’s littered with great lines, great characters, and genre-defining moments. Plus, in Alan Rickman, it has one of the finest cinematic villains of the past few decades.

Die Hard 2: Die Harder inevitably dilutes matters, this time switching the action to Washington’s Dulles International Airport. But with Willis and a good number of characters returning from the original, it’s a fun--if at times brutal--ride, that scores highly in the entertainment stakes.

Die Hard: With A Vengeance, the third film in the series, pretty much strips away the bulk of the supporting cast, and replaces them with the not-significant figure of Samuel L Jackson. It changes the dynamic of the film into a buddy-buddy movie, albeit a good one. And again, it’s a ride that’s hard not to enjoy, with Jeremy Irons giving good measure as McClane’s chief foe.

Finally, Die Hard 4.0 is a real surprise. Given the fact that it arrived over a decade after the third film, it finds Willis and relative newcomer Justin Long shouldering an entertaining, old fashioned action film, that papers over its occasional cracks by asking its lead actor to ramp things up a gear when necessary. And watching John McClane do what he does--even when any hint of reality is thrown out of the window near the end--is endlessly entertaining.

So while none of the sequels have matched the peerless original, the Die Hard Quadrilogy nonetheless delivers one classic, and three very enjoyable action movies. And you can’t argue with that kind of hit rate. Always, always bet on McClane... --Simon Brew

Product Description

All four films from the popular 'Die Hard' franchise. In 'Die Hard' (1988) on Christmas Eve, New York cop John McClane (Bruce Willis) is visiting his estranged wife Holly (Bonnie Bedelia) in Los Angeles, where she works. They are attending a party at Holly's high-rise office block when terrorists, led by the suave Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman) break in, taking everyone hostage. McClane manages to evade capture, however, and sets out to rescue his wife and the other prisoners. It is not long before he is running barefoot over shattered glass in a sweaty vest, muttering 'Yippy kay aye' as he dispatches the baddies with bullets and a certain earthy wit. In 'Die Hard 2 - Die Harder' (1990), Los Angeles cop John McClane is set to meet up with wife Holly on Christmas Eve, this time at Dulles airport in Washington DC. However, when terrorists take over the airport in an attempt to rescue dictator Esperanza (Franco Nero) from his incoming flight, it is up to McClane to restore order and ensure that Holly's plane lands safely. Get that sweaty vest out, and put some shoes on this time. In 'Die Hard with a Vengeance' John McClane becomes involved in a twisted game of Simon Says when an evil terrorist (Jeremy Irons) sends him dashing all over the city in an effort to find a series of explosive devices. Teaming up with electrician Zeus Carver (Samuel L. Jackson), McClane soon discovers that the bombs are an elaborate ruse intended to provide cover for a billion dollar bank job. Finally, 'Die Hard 4.0' (2007) finds McClane routinely asked to bring in a computer hacker, Matt Farrell (Justin Long) for questioning. In transit, events overtake them as they witness a full-scale cyber attack on the country's infrastructure led by mystery attacker Thomas Gabriel (Timothy Oliphant), who plans to systematically shut down or destroy the nation's major networks over three days. With time running out, McClane and his hacker friend have to stop the mastermind before it's too late.

5.0 out of 5 stars 4 great action movies for a nice price. 21 July 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I think the transfers of the movies are very good.
Not perfect, but easily enough to encourage buying the Blu-Ray-versions instead of the DVDs.

All 4 are great movies, but I think number 1&3 are a bit better than the other two.

I am also going to join the "Die Hard With A Vengeance is uncut"-club.
Before I watched the movie I checked out a video which shows many or probably all cuts made by the BBFC.
The first scenes shown are definitely not censored. Neither the lift scene nor the scene with a woman stabbing a police officer to death are cut.
I can't guarantee everything is uncensored, though, because there are too many scenes to remember.

4.0 out of 5 stars John McClane just keeps on ticking. 1 Nov 2007
Format:DVD
If you're looking to buy this, you probably already know if you like the Die Hard movies so I'll skip the first three as for most people, the first film out of the box will be Die Hard 4.0 otherwise known as Live Free or Die Hard. It's an enjoyable romp although any sheen of reality that the first three had has been stripped away for this installment. This movies' terrorists appear to be of the superhuman variety, exhibiting rather unbelievable gymnastic abilities coupled with the capability to sustain impacts that would kill most people. It's also the least sweary of all the Die Hard movies, attaining a 15 certificate instead of the usual 18. Oh, and some parts of the film have obviously been dubbed in post production. That happens in all movies because otherwise you'd have the same inconsistent soundscape you get on a camcorder but you usually don't notice because they're saying the same lines. In this film, there are scenes where their lips are clearly saying one thing and their voices are saying something else. It's really annoying when TV networks do that but you'd think a Hollywood studio would pull it off a bit better. But don't let that put you off as it's a rip-roaring action movie.

The boxset itself seems a little haphazardly put together. None of the original three movies are brand new prints so they all have dirt and scractches on them, although they're not really old prints either and the picture quality is probably still superior to what you might see on TV. They're also all in 16:9 Full Widescreen whereas Die Hard 4.0 is in Letterbox Widescreen. It's a bit of a mystery as to why. Die Hard With A Vengeance has a really strange box, cheap and amateurish and nothing like the VHS coverart that came out years ago.

Finally ! I've been waiting forever for a decent Blu-ray box set of these films to come along and have been toying with the idea of buying them individually for ages , but always knew a box set was on the horizon so held out.
Yes , I know I could have waited until all five movies were available to buy in one neat box set , but couldn't resist this 25th Anniversary Blu-ray set thats available now... I've waited too long !

Whats left to say about the Die Hard movies that hasn't already been said ?
I won't bore the pants off you by rehashing opinions on how Alan Rickman is the greatest onscreen villain ever (YES , he should have gotten away with it !) or Robert Davi's line about Saigon being the greatest line ever shouted and that the first Die Hard is without doubt the best of the bunch , as you know this already , so will concentrate on telling you about the Blu-ray quality that you get and whether its worthy of the upgrade.

For the first 3 films picture quality is good and much better than its DVD versions , BUT... You still get the feeling its not as good as they could have gotten them and could do with a further polish.
The audio transfer is acceptable and certainly not the worst I've heard , but its far from the best.
Die Hard 4.0 being relatively new compared to the others , has a flawless picture and sound.

As for the bonus disc "Decoding Die Hard" this is a brilliant addition , with new interviews with actors/directors/writers (Rickman and McTiernan are the real highlights) and Hart Bochner (who appears not to have aged a day) is a real treat , although weird without the beard , and looking at every aspect of all the films , but at a little over an hour and a half to cover all 4 films , this could and SHOULD have been twice as long.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent series of films 2 May 2013
Format:Blu-ray
80s and early 90s movies sometimes have a cheap grey look to the film stock which means they will never, in my opinion, look particularly good in high definition (the Lethal Weapon films for example didn't gain anything from the upgrade). The Blu-Ray picture and sound quality appears to be excellent on all four of these movies. I get the impression real effort has been made to master the early films as best as possible, instead of just quickly chucking them out.

Die Hard (1988)
It's a proper, solid drama that just happens to have a lot of action in it. A very good thriller could have resulted from it if they removed all the action. It could even have made a decent stage play. The characters all have some dimensions to them, certainly more than is usual for the genre. Particular kudos should go the wife character as she brings a lot to the semi-realistic tone of the movie. I assume as it was adapted from a novel that the extra depths and realism comes from that. The bad guys are limited in number, have been cast with distinctive looking actors and they all have names (no Henchman 1 and Henchman 2). The script is authentically dramatic and doesn't rely on the action to entertain the audience on its own. It is the Citizen Kane of its genre. For me the secret of its success is that it has a dramatic script that just happens to have lots of excellent action in it. It's curious how so many cast members, who make an impact in the biggest movie of its year, failed to make anything else of note.

10 out of 10

Die Hard 2: Die Harder (1990)
A very good action movie with more of a plot than usual for the genre. It's a very interesting set up with the airport controls taken away from the tower.
